Goodreads Description:
 As a little girl, Daisy Appleby was killed in a school bus crash. Moments after the accident, she was brought back to life.

A secret government agency has developed a drug called Revive that can bring people back from the dead, and Daisy Appleby, a test subject, has been Revived five times in fifteen years. Daisy takes extraordinary risks, knowing that she can beat death, but each new death also means a new name, a new city, and a new life. When she meets Matt McKean, Daisy begins to question the moral implications of Revive, and as she discovers the agency’s true goals, she realizes she’s at the center of something much larger — and more sinister — than she ever imagined.

My Review:
I fell in love with Cat Patrick's work last year after reading her novel Forgotten.  In fact it was one of my favorite reads from last year so I knew that after finishing that book I would read just about anything else that she choose to write in the future.
Which is why I was so excited when I saw this release.

Once again Patrick wows us with something completely unique and different in the YA genre and she manages to make it unbelievable and believable all in one go.

She once again creates characters that are completely relateable and loveable and gives us a plot that will keep you guessing until the very end.

While this one lacked a little bit of the action that I was hoping for and could be a little slow at times, this was still a great read that I devoured in one sitting. 

My only complaint is that the ending could of had just a little more to it. I think this very easily could have turned into a sequel and still have been a fabulous read.

And while I didn't love this one as much as I did Forgotten, it still proves that Patrick knows what she is doing and has some serious talent and will always be on my list of authors that are must reads.


  1. I am so dying to read this book! I loved Forgotten and can not wait till May to get my hands on this book :)

  2. I think you will really like it Tee! It is different, not quite as good as Forgotten but still great!

  3. Ok how did I miss Forgotten last year? I am going to go read your review and look it up now. Well, the ending may not have been perfect but at least it wasn't a cliffhanger right?
